This English surname of RUSTIN is a habitation name from any of the various places so called, for example in Norfolk, North Yorkshire, and Humberside. The two villages of this name in Norfolk are recorded in the Domesday Book as 'Ristuna' and are from Old English 'hris' brushwood plus 'tun' enclosure, settlement. RUSTON Parva in Humberside appears in the Domesday Book as 'RORESTON' from the general case of the Old Norman byname 'Hror' (Vigorous) plus Old English 'tun'; RUSTON in North Yorkshire is ROSTUNE in the Domesday Book, apparently from Old English 'hrost' roost, roof plus tun, referring to a building with an unusual roof. Early records of the name are listed as Walter de Ruston, in county Cambridgeshire in the year l273 and John de Rustone, county Cambridgeshire ibid. The surname passed early into the county of Cambridge and is still found there. l666-7 Robert King and Anne RUSTON were married at Westminster. l75l - Benjamin RUSTON and Dorothy Beech were married at St. Georges, Hanover Square.The Norman Conquest in England in the year of 1066 revolutionized our personal nomenclature. The old English name system was gradually broken up and old English names became less common and were replaced by new names from the continent. Most of the early documents deal with the upper classes who realised that an additional name added prestige and practical advantage to their status. Names of peasants rarely occurred in medieval documents. In 1086 the compilation of the Domesday Book was ordered by William the Conqueror (1027-87), king of England from 1066. He was born in Falaise, the bastard son of Robert, Duke of Normandy, by Arlette, a tanner's daughter. On his father's death in 1035, the nobles accepted him as a duke. When Edward the Confessor, King of England died in 1066, William invaded England that Autumn, on 14th October, 1066 killing Harold (who had assumed the title of King). English government under William assumed a more feudal aspect, the King's tenants-in-chief and all titles to land were derived from his grants, and the Domesday Book contains details of the land settlements, and the names of the owners of such.
